Heading out bright and early to plug his new movie, Keanu Reeves stopped by the "Today" show in New York City on Monday (December 23).

The "Matrix" star wore a black dress shirt, gray suit, and some facial scruff as he made his way inside to promote "47 Ronin."

After speaking about the action-packed fantasy flick, the 49-year-old actor was asked how he felt about a sequel to the franchise that began with "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure" in 1989.

Careful with his words, Keanu replied, "I'm open to the idea of that. I feel like it's pretty surreal to play Bill & Ted at 50, but we have a good story in that. You can see the life and joy in those characters and I think the world can always use some life and joy." The good news for fans is, "[T]here's a story; there's a script. We're just trying to get the dough together to make this crazy story."
